To any foodies out there, Mercado de San Miguel is one of thing you must try out in Madrid. Originally built as a covered market off Plaza Mayor feeding the madrilenos, the place was converted after several years of renovation into a Madrid’s culinary spot.
You will find pretty much anything to make your mouth melt with dozens of tapas stalls, and wine kioks scattered all around the mercado. Love this idea where you just stroll through the market and buy whatever tapas you feel like having from fresh oysters to bellota ham, bocadillo, and much more. I had no idea where to start as everything looked so appetising. Truly, an amazing place for some delicious food.
The atmosphere, itself, is worth it. People are flocking the Mercado over lunch time during office break. Others are meeting up after a days of works to share a few drinks before heading home.
However, don’t expect to come here for groceries but do come here it is a fantastic gourmet food center that will excited any foodies. Definitely a must see when in Madrid and come on a empty stomach.
